In a committed attempt to unite African citizens and social groups to fulfil the pledges of the Kilimanjaro Declaration Africans Rising embarked on a continent-wide endeavour to launch countless National Engagement Platforms (NEP). The main purpose behind setting up such decentralised hubs is to inspire collective actions to promote democracy, social and gender equality, transparency and environmental justice. Over the next few years, we aim to bring together non-state actors in each African country as to stitch a shared national platform for progressive change.
Africans Rising NEPs are inclusive platforms which will include individuals, movements, NGOs, faith-based organizations, labour trade unions, artists, athletes, researchers, entrepreneurs, students and anyone who is interested in impacting their community in a certain manner. Each NEP launch will deploy a three-phase process precisely: i) goal identification ii) drafting a shared set of objectives iii) action implementation.
